Sarah Jessica Parker was on hand to offer help at an understaffed Dublin restaurant this week.
The Hollywood star was visiting the ramen restaurant Soup 2 in Smithfield when she noticed the staff members rushing away from their feet.
Parker is visiting Ireland with husband Matthew Broderick and their three children, James (19), Marion and Tabitha (12).
Talk to HELLO! Magazine, owner Conor Hughes says she’s one of the best clients they have.
“She noticed we were extremely busy, asked me if I was short on staff, and jokingly offered to help in the kitchen, while I was cooking and running the food! She seemed to know a lot about it! our business and clearly did it very carefully.”
The family dined on a fried chicken starter and ramen for their main course.
He said they also ordered: “Cauli wings and salmon sashimi to share. I sent an extra plate of sashimi because they seemed to like the first one. The gesture was met with awe-inspiring delight. They really appreciate it. Especially the kids.”
Conor said that before leaving the restaurant, the Sex and the City actress hugged and kissed him.
While many patrons ignore the A-listers, others say hello to the actress and her famous husband.

“Both Sarah and Matthew are happy to chat with anyone and with everyone,” Conor said.
“My friend Lauren bought her a cocktail that Sarah thanked her for personally paying at the counter.”
He said Sarah “spent a lot of time reading our reviews and choosing us for one of their meals before leaving Ireland because we ‘seemed great’.”
The couple are no strangers to the Emerald Isle, owning a holiday home in Donegal that has been part of the Matthew family for over 40 years.
The Broderick-Parker family was in Donegal last weekend for a GAA tournament they sponsored in memory of Matthew’s parents James and Patricia.
All five family members presented winning medals and trophies at the event.
